WORSHIPPING THE KING

From THE DAILY MAIL:

A Church of England vicar has left his congregation all shook up after quitting his job - to become an Elvis Presley impersonator. The Reverend Andy Kelso, 64, ditched his dog collar to wear a high collar and jewelled white jump suit after saying he had a calling from God. Now, the father of five has been dubbed 'Elvis Priestly' after he stopped preaching from the pulpit to belt out The King’s classics to other churches, packed-out pubs, clubs and old folks homes near his former vicarage.

  1. If only they’d impersonate Elvis of the early years: maybe “Jailhouse Rock” Elvis in t-shirt & jeans.

  2. He’s retiring 1 year early at 64 – hardly “quitting his job”. He’s becoming an NSM or Post Retiral Ministry (admittedly in a new and interesting way – beats becoming a social worker i reckon)
